This past May I had the joy of serving as head photographer for a mother/daughter retreat! I tried to capture not just action shots, but also ones of the location. This is one of my attempts to capture the beautiful Inn (Carlisle Inn, Sugarcreek, OH) at night. Any recommendations as to how I could improve the composition or my in-camera settings or editing? 🙂 As our family travels and does events, I’d love to be able to skillfully take advantage of free (or quick!) evening minutes to take pictures! 🙂
Here’s the details:
Time of year: May
Time of day: After 8:00 or 9:00pm
Camera: Canon 7D
Lens: Canon 28-135mm
That’s very pretty! 🙂 There seems to be a lot of grain in the pic which would come from the high ISO. It would have been nice if you could of had a tripod, but a tripod in the parking lot would have been kinda strange! 😉 It you had a tripod, you could’ve lowered the shutter speed and the ISO. It might have been a nice addition to the pic if there had been starbursts on the lights. but it would have been challenging to raise the f-stop without a tripod. That seems like a nice place!
